Rangers down 9-0 at home to Houston….in the third inning!

They are in free fall, we should make the playoffs even if we only play about .500 ball the rest of the season.

Oops! Topa gives up the 3 run bomb to tie. :(

So at this point there's no one in the pen that Servais can trust to go out there and get 3 outs without getting into trouble or just straight up blowing it. He's just gonna have to pick a guy and hope.

Right now I think Brash is the safest bet. After that, not a whole lot to choose from. Topa was good but lately hasn’t been. Saucedo has been getting knocked around a lot the last month too.

And who knows what you get with Munoz, he is all over the place.

One positive is that when playoffs start (assuming we make it), Woo and Miller probably go to the bullpen.

The bullpen is a mess right now.

The pit
Munoz needs to trust his 100mph fastball from pitch one. Dicked around with his breaking crap to go 3-0. Also he needs to learn to hold on runners better as his catcher sucks at throwing them out.

A self inflicted loss to a team you should be beating.

My only hope for making the playoffs is that Texas is playing much worst than us.

If the M's or Rangers don't get it together pretty quickly, this could be yet another season that ends up being a pretty comfortable division win for the Astros.

Man it's amazing how quickly things change in baseball. A week ago the M's were the hottest team in baseball and had sustained that for 2 months. Now they've lost 5 of their last 7 games, everyone in that once elite bullpen is struggling, and we've seen several rough outings from our starting pitching.

Still firmly in contention for both the division and the playoffs, but things sure went from looking awfully rosy to quite concerning in no time.

That was a soul-crushing loss. Looking at the Rangers' and Jays' schedules the rest of the way - can't afford to lose games like this. I'm not even thinking division at this point.

Also, I don't want to see Leone pitch another inning. Liked him years ago but dude is terrible. Couldn't cut it with the Angels yet we're using him in games the M's need to win.

No, we cannot afford to lose like that.

soul—crushing, it is.


That sucked.

A new low. I don't even know what to think at this point. Just numb.
Asstros are going to win this division going away, again. Puke
